Lazy Lee USA wins innovator award


Lazy Lee USA Spinning Closets has won the 2018 WMIA Wooden Globe Innovator Award using Lockdowel fastening to speed and simplify flat-packed assembly.

Lazy Lee USA Spinning Closets won the Innovator award after re-engineering their product with Lockdowel fastening, allowing each piece to be snapped and locked together without screws, without glue and without extra hardware. Lazy Lee USA Spinning Closets are assembled where they will be used, and can be disassembled and moved.

“We are thrilled to be recognized as the most innovative woodworking product of 2018,” Brett Messer, CEO of Lazy Lee USA, said in a statement. “I’m proud of our team for taking the time to re-engineer the spinning closets and pantries so that anyone, anywhere in the U.S. can have the storage space they need in a beautiful, rotating piece of furniture they can be happy to display and happier to use.”

The WMIA Innovator Award is presented to a company which currently produces a unique and innovative wood-based product or utilizes an innovative process to produce a wood-based product using high technology machinery supplied by one or more WMIA-member companies.

Lazy Lee USA storage furniture is made with a nested based Biesse Skill router, Biesse Exil boring machine, SNX nVision contour edge bander and Cabinet Vision software. These components enable Lockdowel EClips fasteners to be inserted within the wood and allow the Lazy Lee units to be snapped and locked together.
